Being at University I decided that I needed to get a TV, so after some research I choose the Samsung SyncMaster B1930HD. Being both a TV and a monitor has enabled me to relax and study easily. The setup is very easy and I had my laptop connected and displaying on the screen within a matter of minutes.
The screen is clear and bright and as a TV is exactly what I wanted. Once the aerial is connected (again taking very little time) viewing is as expected from any standard TV. It's compact size and sturdy base has allowed me to also put it on my desk and use it as a monitor for watching online.
I did experiment using it as a monitor for a standard computer at home and found that it was extremely good, offering the benefits of a widescreen TV style display and the simplicity of a computer monitor.
It also has the advantage of a very sleek design and therefore looks very good as either TV or monitor. The traditional back gloss look makes it a very attractive piece of equipment. There is very little wrong with this product, possibly the little jingle every time you turn it on or off will annoy you after a while but apart from that its simple, effective and great value and I would highly recommend it.
